Making shopping a pleasure at Apples & Pears Clothing 

Online shopping is fantastic in so many ways – it's quick, easy and we work hard to make sure you know exactly what you are buying before you add to basket. For example, where possible we provide detailed measurements for our garments. We never use filters or airbrushing in our imagery so you can see what our outfits look like on real people, just like you. And you have 30 days to return your order if it’s not
quite right, giving you lots of time to try it on in the comfort of your home.  

That said, we always love meeting our customers and so couldn’t resist opening the doors to our Colchester offices for pre-bookable personal shopping appointments.  

Take your time to shop from our collection 

These one-hour sessions are perfect if you don’t feel comfortable trying on clothes in shop changing rooms. You will have the room to yourself to pick the outfits that take your fancy.  

Maybe you are shopping for a specific event and need to find the ideal outfit, or you are just bored with what’s in your wardrobe and fancy mixing up your look.  

Or maybe you would like help working out what suits you. We are happy to help you select pieces which will look great on, or leave you be if you prefer!  

Marie will take your booking and will be on hand on the day to look after you.   

Find a time that fits 

We can be flexible on times, with slots available either during the week or at the weekend. We will even make you a cuppa to enjoy while you shop!
